Crystal Bowersox Is Getting Divorced

When I saw that Crystal Bowersox was getting divorced, I said to myself that I knew that name, but I could not remember where exactly I heard it. Such is the fate of an American Idol contestant in recent years. It was not that long ago that people could name the top five or sex finalists every year and not much longer than that where finalists could look forward to actually having a career in the music business or entertainment field or be a reality star or a host or something. I saw that Crystal has two records out and I couldn't tell you one song from either or that she was even alive. Turns out that she is, but that the two week dating period she had with her boyfriend which turned to marriage did not work. Crystal is supposed to play Patsy Cline on Broadway so hopefully that works out for her.

There are sex finalists on AI? Damn, I shoulda been watching.

@Lucas. Apparently primetime TV has changed a lot since I've been trapped watching nothing but Dora and Timmy Time on Netflix.

She's very talented. I hope she makes it on Broadway.

there was a boyfriend when her season started. she made it clear that she wanted to marry him (remember he saying, "hopefully he'll man up" and ask me to marry him) to ryan one time during one show. then, randomly, RIGHT before a winner was announced, she said they broke up. then, almost immediately she has a new boyfriend and they get married.

she IS talented, but much like casey from the scotty season, she doesn't have the look main stream america buys.

I know the one sex finalist had sex finalist sex with Paul Abdul (allegedly)

I love Crystal--sorry this didn't work out for her--she is a nice girl and very talented. I think she will do a great job if the Patsy Cline show makes it to Broadway.

I don't think she has really gone the mainstream route where she would be on the radio--but she seems to be touring constantly--and working, making her living doing music. I think that was always her point in going on AI--I always thought all the other stuff associated with the show was not what she wanted--she wanted to be a working musician and she is.

She was great-----if there was ever a Janis Joplin bio-pic she should get the role, she has the look and the voice. That was the last season of idol I ever watched.

I've never watched an episode of AI. However, I do know who Crystal is because A) she's genuinely talented, and 2) (Mad About You reference!) she doesn't have the standard singer-in-a-box look that music execs seem to insist on.

She is getting divorced already? I hadn't even heard she born.

Lucas quit being so misogynistic.

Crystal is very talented, I think she will be great as Patsy on Broadway. She is a musician, not a star wannaby. I hope she has a long and happy career just as she is.

She's an amazing talent. And a free spirit. Hope the Patsy Cline show is a hit.
